As a non-profit community that blogs about new / servant leadership we also organize IRL events. With Jgive we have found a component with which we can both handle our donations and we use it for subscriptions to events (where the subscriber decides what the event is worth for him / her). Been working with their support team on some issues and they where very responsive and open for new features / improvements.

If you are looking for a donation / crowdfunding component: (j)give it a try! you won't be disappointed.

Excellent component, super support

Recently my site broke down after upgrading a plugin to a newer version on my website (Social Login). Disabling Jotcache learned that there was a conflict between the two plugins. Social login's solution was to not use JotCache (???) but after pointing the developer of Jotcache to this issue he solved the issue and released a new version!

This kind of support is what makes this an excelent component: not only does it do what is advertised but when there is a problem it gets fixed fast! (the developer could have easilly choosen to point to the other plugin for a solution).



Thanks Vlado for this wonderfull addition to my website and user experience.

Must have for (Kunena) forum


Posted on 15 February 2012
Setting up a community is fun, being involved, sharing ideas and making people enthousiastic....

But then your first spam message is posted on your forum and the second and the third...

You feel like somebody invades your privacy *big time* and besides that I feel it reflects 'bad' on my community and very unprofessional at the least!

And that is with recaptcha enabled!

So yesterday I was fed up (understatement) after deleting the (lost count) spam message and installed this component.

Installation was so simple that I at first doubted that it worked (it can't be that simple and straight foreward :))

But it does and it does (up til now with a 100% accurate hitrate!



This makes this component for me a must-have. A captcha alone will not do the job!



Thanks for creating this wonderful component now I can spent my time on the fun part again :)

Super module


Posted on 16 November 2011
found this (just added) module and exchanged my installed module with this one.

Although just added, this module has all the features required (e.g. loading pictures from a directory instead of inputting them manually) and loads perfectly in the background without any visible hick-ups or blinking.



Very pleased that I found this module, just gives my websites that extra professional touch.

Great

Being relatively new to Joomla I have been searching for this functionality in the Joomla product itself, just to find out that it is not part of the core functionality.

Looking at several forums and following several advises from the community (meanly regarding the usage of forms) I by coincidence stumbled upon this component.



It works perfectly (although it is still labeled as beta).



A big 'thumbs up' for this extension that I think should be part of the core functionality of Joomla.



Great job!

regards,

Ruud.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review and welcome to the Joomla community :)
Also thaks for taking the time to give me new idea's for the extension and test them for me.
